Former France attacker Franck Ribery has joined Salernitana on a one-year deal, the promoted Serie A club said on Monday.

Ribery, 38, had been a free agent since leaving Fiorentina at the end of last season and was welcomed at their Estadi Archi home in southern Italy by around a hundred supporters.

"There is an incredible passion and that's why I came to Salerno," Ribery said during a press conference.

Salernitana were competing in Italy's lowest professional level when Ribery won the Champions League with Bayern Munich in 2013.

"I've come to bring my experience to the team," he added.

Salernitana, based to the south of Naples, have returned to the Italian top-flight after relegation in 1999 and head to Torino on Sunday after losing their two opening games of the season. (AFP)
